Reader Focus: MrsM! Michelle Cu-Martinez

For our second edition of Reader Focus: The winner of my birthday giveaway, let’s hear it for MrsM!! Michelle Cu-Martinez!

I met up with Michelle at Serenitea (will upload the full story about this meet-up, which included other top bloggers, on a separate blog post) to give her her PhP1,000 SM Gift Card. Of course, many of you already know MrsM.  For those who don’t, well here’s a glimpse of this popular lifestyle blogger’s life…

How she describes herself.

I am a housewife, executive secretary and a blogger all rolled into one. Housewife=24/7, executive secretary to DH 3x a week and blogger when I am in the mood. LOL.

How she landed on

Bea, I don’t know if you remembered but I met you in Holy Cow! You were with Leki. And Rowena introduced you to me as “Siya si SKYSENSHI!” and the rest, as they say, is history. LOL.

I like your beauty topics, especially your dilemma with Pond’s. I swear binasa ko ata lahat ng posts mo about it. Sana wala akong na miss.

And also when you conduct a giveaway, it’s so easy to join! Plus the prizes are awesome! More SM GCs to come. LOL.

What interests MrsM?

My favorite topics are food, make up, and fashion in that order.

My favorite hang out: Serenitea! Haha! I love Japanese restaurants especially the one in Sta. Rosa called Umenoya. Last I heard the restaurant transferred to Biñan, Laguna already. I will visit it soon.

My top beauty product picks are Celeteque facial wash, Dove Facial Wash, Pond’s Cold Cream, Kanebo, Carmex, which I discovered just recently, and The Body Shop. These are the products that I use and I am willing to pay for. Haha! The beauty products that I love do not cost an arm and a leg but they work for me. I still haven’t found the right shampoo combination/ treatment that works well for my itchy scalp. But it seems like Nizoral is working well for me right now. I use it alternately with a local organic brand tea tree shampoo for dandruff control. So far it’s working after two weeks of alternating the two. Let’s just wait and see after a month. I will keep you posted.

I love fashion and looking at all fashion bloggers’ photos. I like how they pose so I am currently working on my pose as well. I can’t say that I am fashion forward. My style is simple. I like clothes that are comfortable. It doesn’t necessarily has to eb expensive. I know my limitations, no sleeveless or halter for me. I like to wear short skirts and shorts because I want to show off my legs. Haha! It’s the only body part that I am proud of anyway. Hey, I am in my 30’s, give me a break! LOL. In a few years’ time, no matter how much I would want to show it off, nobody would dare even look. LOL.

I am so talkative, OMG, maybe that’s why Pond’s christened me to be the “Queen of Talk” in the Unbeaten Challenge. LOL.

If she could be a guest blogger at Skysenshi…

I would write about make up: the way I do it. During one event, I learned that the flat brush I use for my compact powder was intended for liquid foundation. Haha!

But the heck with the manual, sometimes, I even use my fingers to apply make up. LOL. Look at some of my FOTD, it came out just fine, di ba? So, I think it doesn’t matter if you only have one make up brush or even with no brush at all, if you know the trick in applying make up, you will be just fine. 

Thanks, MrsM, for gracing us with your presence! Of course, after this, I’d be going to your blog to check out your recent updates. Haha!

Hm…I think I met you waaaay before Holy Cow. I think I remember seeing you in one of the Starbucks events I attended as a contributor of Spot.PH. I’m not quite sure, though…

    This was supposed to be for my birthday giveaway where I talk about my readers/other bloggers rather than myself. (Ang daldal ko na about myself eh.)
